Enterprise Architecture - An Approach to Promote Traceability and Synchronization of Computational Models

José Rogério Poggio Moreira, Rita Suzana Pitangueira Maciel

Abstract

In the context of Enterprise Architecture (EA) modeling, the lack of alignment between the computational models from the strategic level to the operational level of Information Technology (IT), focusing on information systems, constitutes an organizational problem. The root cause of this problem is the low capacity of traceability and lack of synchronization between the computational models present in the EA. Among the negative impacts related to this problem are, for example, the obsolescence of models, the difficulty of carrying out impact analyzes and making decisions, in scenarios of organizational changes. This paper aims to propose an approach to enable the traceability and synchronization between the computational models of enterprise architecture. It is hoped to provide a greater alignment, understanding and adaptation of the organizational environment, from the strategic level to the operational level of IT.
